Micheal K. Smith state on his website that George gastineau's 1st wife is UNKNOWN - http://www.oldbooksmith.com/report-georgegastineau.html so he has changed his prespective on the wives of George gastineau @George Gastineau (c1775 - 1867) - but not edited or corrected his profiles here on Geni
Micheal k. Smith at one time had stated on his website since I first found this he has redesigned his website edited and corrected it:
supposed marriage to Sally Carraway is wishful thinking and the identity of his first wife (my ancestor) is still unknown.
In family tradition, George [Gastineau] is supposed to have married 1st Sally Carraway 9 June 1791 in Lynhaven Parish, Princess Anne County, Virginia. However, this depends on his name having been recorded as Gasking. There was, in fact, a "George Gasking" in Lynhaven who married Sally Carraway on the date noted -- but this was NOT George Gastineau.
Both the Gaskings and the Carraways are thoroughly researched families in Princess Anne County, and neither of them has any documented connection of any kind to the Gastineau family. A supposed marriage to Sally Carraway is wishful thinking and the identity of his first wife (my ancestor) is still unknown
